[quote=""Misfit""]Thanks EC (and Carly) glad I bailed on it after 50 some pages. Loved the bit about the midges :p .

Wish I had time to read all those blogs but that would cut into reading time.......[/quote]

Thanks, EC - I missed this until just now! I cross-posted the review to the review thread here as well (I hope nobody minds).

Misfit, I subscribe to some blogs using the Google reader. Google puts the titles of new posts up on my Google home page and I can quickly scan them and see who's updated, then go and read the posts. It's quite a quick way to keep up with blogs.

Someone Knows My Name

Post by Julianne Douglas » Wed September 17th, 2008, 5:51 pm

I'm about one hundred pages into Lawrence Hill's Someone Knows My Name and it is wonderful! It's the story of a Muslim African girl captured and brought to SC as a slave. Disturbing, but beautifully written.

My copy of The Heretic Queen arrived today! I just finished my lesson plans that are due Friday and hope to start reading the book tonight...if I don't nod off before that. I'm still not adjusted to waking up at 5 AM.

Still slogging through The Queen's Fool.
